October 31, 2020 will mark the twentieth anniversary of landmark UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. Since its adoption, the resolution has generated extensive institutional activity within the UN, very substantial civil society activity locally and globally to press for implementation, and prolific scholarly analysis and critique. In order to mark the coming anniversary, the Transitional Justice Institute will host a series of seminars throughout 2020 leading up to October 31, 2020 to reflect on progress and enduring obstacles, critical questions and new directions on WPS.
